At first glance, polarised lenses look exactly like regular sunglass lenses, but they actually function as a filter that reduces reflections and increases contrast. The idea behind polarised glasses it to filter the light reflecting back from surfaces and to stop disturbing light waves. These kinds of sunglasses are popular among e.g. drivers, athletes and people into water and winter sports and hiking. These lenses are very suitable for people with light-sensitive eyes.
